Yesterday Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Hillsborough River State Park in Thonotosassa, Florida. Hillsborough River State Park has trails, a pool, picnic tables, camping, and additional opportunities for outdoor recreation including: fishing, and kayaking.
We had a gorgeous adventure to Hillsborough River State Park. Hillsborough River State Park is one I frequented often with Shadow and Buster…in my Tampa days…so I was quite excited to return. I parked with the plan to check out the suspension bridge, and the reminiscing began. We walked the Baynard trail, checked out the boardwalk, the suspension bridge, and other parts of the Park that looked familiar. I was a big sister with Big Brothers/Big Sisters for ten years, and their annual picnics occurred mostly at Hillsborough River State Park. I did not remember where exactly in the Park where this event had taken place but was quite happy to find I happened to Park in that same parking lot, leading to many wonderful memories. I loved visiting this Park again. The tropical greenery is gorgeous, the suspension bridge is spectacular and there are endless trails, boardwalks, and waterfront views. Gus loved his new hobby – lizard hunting (haha), while Wilma enjoyed her old hobby – rolling (haha). It was a warm day but we took our time walking slowly. It was just a perfect visit to a gorgeous Park. So glad we could visit Hillsborough State Park (Rating: 4).
